H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds comes to life in The Coming of the Martians, a faithfully adapted full-cast audio drama from Sherwood Studio Studios.
The Coming of the Martians is an all-new dramatisation of the original alien invasion story. First serialised in 1897, the classic science-fiction has never been adapted as it was intended, with the dark horrific tone intact. Until now!
Award-winning actor Colin Morgan (Merlin) stars alongside a fantastic cast of actors. These include Dan Starkey (Strax from Doctor Who) and Nigel Lindsay (Sir Robert Peel in Victoria). Big Finish’s Lisa Bowerman also stars and directs.
